So yesterday I didn’t get up in the morning to work out. Jillian woke up at like and then by the time we finally got back to sleep it was and my alarm was going to go off at , so I was like “um, no.” Then all throughout the day I felt bad about myself for not getting up and working out (since I said I was going to). But then around I got a burst of energy and decided “I’m going running!” So I did.
Well, at on a Florida summer day it’s about 900 degrees outside. And of course yesterday there were no clouds in sight, so there was no escaping the sun or the heat. I ended up doing the same 2.2 mile loop that I did morning (when it was about 700 degrees cooler) and I even threw in 2/1 intervals (because I could physically only run for a minute at a time without dropping dead). All that said, it felt GREAT! I am so glad that I went out there and did it. I was feeling crappy about myself all day for not working out in the morning, so I’m really glad I did something about it. When I got done my body literally felt like it was on fire. I was so hot. Literally, flames on my body.
Afterwards I went upstairs (where we have a supersonic ceiling fan that I can lie directly under) and cooled off and then did the first phase three workout (yes, I’m behind) of Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp. It was good one. All in all, so so glad I worked out yesterday, even if it wasn’t in the morning.
This morning I decided to not endure the 900 degrees in the evening, and I went out and did 3 miles at , when it was only about 200 degrees out. I was just going to do the same loop I did and , but then I realized that in order to work myself up to 10 miles for my 10 Miler coming up, I need to actually increase mileage. Funny how that works huh? So I decided to bump it up to 3 big ones. It went well. Now I just have to work on increasing my mileage over the next few weeks. I need a plan. Gotta work on that.
Jillian had her 6 month check up yesterday morning, and just as I suspected, she is perfect. Growing wonderfully, developing wonderfully, she’s just wonderful. And hard to keep up with lately. She’s crawling at an alarming fast rate now. She’s one place and the two seconds later it’s like “where’s Jillian?” Luckily we can keep her in one place while she’s in her jumperoo.
OMG, too cute for words. OK, gotta go!
Do you workout in the morning or the evening? Do you venture out when it’s over a certain temperature outside?
